I Have a New Job

Yeah its true! I am leaving the world of freelancing and am going to go work for “the man. Well actually I’ll be working for a company called Tandem TV. Its a really great small company in hemel hempstead. Its gonna be strange getting used to it. An hour commute there and back. 9-5 hours. not being my own boss. It’ll be a bit of an adjustment but I’m really looking forward to it.

Wow – That was Christmas and New Year’s. This was my first Christmas away from my family. It was also my first Christmas with Ruth which more than made up for the missing my family bit. It was really strange experiencing Christmas in a different way. It’s not like it was hugely different but it was certainly different enough to make me take stock and appreciate how we used to do it my family. Its gonna be fun creating our own traditions and seeing which traditions we take on from each other’s families.

Presents:

Lets see – I’ll jus highlight the main things shall i?

  1. Poker Set
  2. Die Hard 4.0 on DVD
  3. Casino Royal
  4. Wine Atlas – to aid my wine education
  5. A Hat
  6. Millionaire making cards
  7. a staple gun
  8. loooads of chocolate.

Altogether a great Haul.

Ruth’ Birthday

Ruth’s birthday was almost more fun than Christmas day itself. Her birthday is on Boxing day so you’ll understand why its easy to let excitement overflow from one day to the next. I woke rut with a cup of tea and the day was lovely. We had a gorgeous walk on Saunton Sands beach. The whole day was lovely.

New Year’s Eve

We did a Safari supper with a load of friends form church ending with a firework’s display by ME! So it started at one house with a starter course of all sorts of dips and nibbly type things and lots of wine and beer. From there we went on to our Vicars house for dinner where we had the main course. Kate had cooked up a chickeny stewy type amazingly tasty thing. Next we came back to my place where we had ice cream and lots of beer. The NewYear came in with champagne and it was amazing to be with my Wife to be. I do have to admit though that i was preoccupied with the fireworks. It was about 20/30 mins worth of fireworks. Not amzingly so though. I wasn’t as organized as i’d hoped but it was fun all the same and i only burnt myself once.

Today

Today has been berserk. I had to go get my passport sorted for the new job. There’s alot of travel involved. It didnt help that the car got towed last night so i had to go sort that out too. So much running around sorting stuff is whats been happening.

I’ll try and get some photos up soon.
